Free Idea # 164 - Customized radio and TV advertisement system

Organize a system for radio and TV programming
in which the consumer is given options as to
which generalized products and services they
would be interested in hearing about during
commercial breaks. Advertisers could then
access their target markets better and
advertising would be less of a nuisance for
listeners and viewers.

Free Idea # 163 - Temporary food restaurant

Install a temporary yet fully functioning fast
food restaurant such as McDonalds or KFC in a
remote, inhospitable location - the Hindu Kush,
a glacier in central Greenland or the Saharah
Desert, for example. As there would be no
custom, the installation would be a work of art.

Free Idea # 162 - Food over cook detection

Create a stove that senses when food is about
to burn or boil over and alerts the user. The
alert would kick in before the smoke alarm
activates or the pan creates a mess on the stove top.

Free Idea # 161 - Department stores web interfaces

Create a service where grocery and department
stores build web interfaces to their inventory
databases so that customers can search to see
if a store has an item in stock before they
leave home to
department stores.
